SHROP SHIRE Drawn from the best Authorities by E. Bowen Geog'r to His Majesty
A map of Shropshire by Bowen for Hinton's Universal Magazine. The arms of Shrewsbury are detailed on the right side of the map. The coat of arms include three leopards faces dating back to the late 1300's. A scroll and foliage motif cartouche frames the map's title. The small hills of the area are shown through lightly hachuring, and larger towns/cities have generalized buildings. Etchings include small churches, fortifications, and town plans. A legend describes the map in the top left corner.
The scale bar is in English miles, and the map uses London for its prime meridian; the scale and coordinates were calculated from the map's scale bar and graticule.
